Christmas Card Sneaky Preview - Mr Lumiukko Hates Christmas: the snowman suicides

It's been a long time since I made some art of my own, let alone posted any on this blog, so I thought I'd swiftly erase the unpleasant memory of my arse (sorry dopp!) with what I spent sunday doing...

Mr Lumiukoo Hates Christmas: the snowman suicides - one way ticket to egypt


I could waffle on pretentiously about how they're a comment on xmas being the loneliest time of the year when depression and suicides soar with the prices of overpackaged food and confectionary but really I just had the idea and decided to run with it. There should be maybe 5 or 6 of them when I'm done, give or take, drip-pen painted with gouache in my usual stylee. No arses or anything.

Oh aye - Lumiukko is wot finnish people (and presumably other finnish snowmen) call snowmen...

It's like the goldfish in a bowl who has a helium balloon tied around his tummy and a little note saying 'Goodbye cruel world'

You are so clever Dem.

Dem said...

The goldfish/helium idea sounds a lot cleverer than any of mine! Anyway, thanks to both of you for your enthusiasm and all that. It's a bit too late for this year now but maybe you'll fork out for a set of these next year?

Anyroad, cheers!

i dunno, the fish thing....where the hell does a fish get a balloon, let alone a tank of helium to inflate it...

or string...

having said that, i've seen the item, and it is funny.

Pushy indeed. Whereas I am just slack. I haven't got anything done this week with no real excuse whatsoever but I will stick something up here in a bit...
